BSBP Bead Hoarders Edition - Meet my Partner

Oh my God, it's been almost two years from my last blog post and I still have some debts I intend to fulfill very soon. Well, what can I say ... life happens ... and not always in a good direction. However, let's get to the present and the Bead Soup Blog Party Bead Hoarders Edition.

~~~~~~

After a few years break, Lori Anderson's Bead Soup Blog Party is back! This year with a little twist - a bead hoarders edition. That means you have to send to your partner a bead that you were hoarding for some time and is quite difficult for you to part with.

My partner this time is Palak Udeshi (motidana) from India and she sent me a very generous bead soup with a beautiful glass pendant.



She is a talented beadweaver, just take a look at the pictures on  her blog.
One of my favorites is this beautiful necklace:


And here's what I've sent to Palak:


My hoarded bead was a beautiful lampwork and metal bead, made by Carolyn Chenault that I've received in an Art Charm Exchange for Beads of Courage swap and auction, hosted by Jennifer Stout Cameron.
The green heart pendant, the pair of big hollow beads and the little swirl beads are made by me from polymer clay. I've added also some other beads, two chains and a key charm.

Can't wait to see what my partner will create with them!!
Come back Saturday, March 25th, 2017, to see Palak's and mine creations as well as the creations of the hostess Lori Anderson and all the other participant's!!!



Be well,
Alenka

Butterfly Blog Hop Reveal and Giveaway

  Ups, I'm late for my own blog hop!!! Well, I'm still in time, but it's already evening of the reveal day. I've woken up with a bad headache and was not able to finish the blog post, but now I'm ok and let's the party begin!!!

  Just to remind you what's all about in few words: I wanted to celebrate my birthday with my polymer clay and beading friends, so I decided to host a blog hop on butterflies. The participants needed to create anything related to butterflies and post it today on their blogs.

  I'm currently experimenting a new technique with polymer clay and I'm still not really good at it ... I wanted to use it for this blog hop anyway. I' still have a long way to go to be happy with the result, but I'll show it to you ...



 I know ... there are many things I need to upgrade, but it still seems very interesting to me ...


And now ... let's take a trip to visit the blogs of all the creative ladies that joined me in this celebration:

1. Alenka (Pepita) --> you are here
 
A big thank you to all of you!!!


And now the giveaway part!!!

On 13th of April I will randomly chose:
a) between all the participants at the blog hop  
5 persons 
that will receive one of beads or cabochons made by me from polymer clay;
b) between all that will comment on my reveal blog post  
1 person 
that will receive a pair of earrings made by me.
The gifts are still a secret, I will reveal them when the winners will receive them.
Let's party and be happy,
Alenka
